Easy way to set gradient background to your buttons.


To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.


To set gradient colors as background for a button, just use it as below:

let colors = [UIColor(hex: "FF8960"), UIColor(hex: "FF62A5")]
button.setGradientBackgroundColors(colors, direction: .toRight, for: .normal)

Method setGradientBackgroundColors(_ colors:, direction:, for state:) is provided as an extended method of UIButton. For that reason, you can use it for any UIButton instance in your project.

Eight predefined directions are supported for the gradient.

public enum DTImageGradientDirection {
    case toLeft
    case toRight
    case toTop
    case toBottom
    case toBottomLeft
    case toBottomRight
    case toTopLeft
    case toTopRight

Besides setting gradient background for UIButton, you can take advantage of this library to create gradient image as below:

let colors = [UIColor(hex: "FF8960"), UIColor(hex: "FF62A5")]
let image = UIImage(size: CGSize(width: 100, height: 100), direction: .toBottom, colors: colors)
